Audi AG

Automation of test/release processes

Our collaboration with Audi AG

The demands on the production units of AUDI AG are continuously increasing with the expansion of the product range and the shortening of product cycles.
In order to be able to continue to meet these requirements effectively and efficiently, IT supported optimisations are being driven forward as part of the „Digital Factory/ViTech“ project.

Within the car body construction department, attention is paid to the further development in the department „Technology Development Joining“.

One component of this project is the development of a database on joining techniques to create a common database basis with standardised and consistent workflows with the task of enabling central storage with worldwide accessibility. With increasing data volume the process support develops into a knowledge database for all test results and their parameters, thereby enabling automated release processes for car body construction.

The Challenges

  • Development of a knowledge database with audit-proof information that serves as a basis for deciding which joining technologies and technology-specific parameters are suitable for which car body parts, taking core premises into account.
  • Central administration of rapidly growing amounts of data on test results, expert knowledge on joining technologies, documentation, approved materials, etc.
  • Importing, processing and evaluating data of varying quality from different systems.
  • Development of an accepted, labour-saving and standardised workflow. Step-by-step automation of approval processes as part of continuous further development using artificial intelligence (algorithms).
  • Integration and connection of the application into the existing IT landscape of the group (Audi, VW).

Our contribution ...

With think tank, we have not only made the joining data bank a central and popular application within Audi AG, but have also increased our efficiency enormously.
